After the deception at Volkswagen exposed in 2015 and the more recent scandal of the Panama Papers, it’s safe to say that the world is definitely in need of a more transparent businesses environment. And while it may be true that thousands of people wake up every day with a brilliant business idea, their business plans often miss a solid and profitable financial strategy and efficient cost planning. And that’s where you will come in, as a prospective student of International Financial Management and Control (IFMC) at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS), the beating heart of any business.
Let’s be clear about it up front: to keep up with the IFMC programme you will need to be good at maths. You may have to do a maths exam before applying, if we feel that your secondary school maths grade is not of a high-enough standard. International Financial Management and Control has a four-year and a three-year programme, the latter differing only in its duration and study intensity. To qualify for this three-year programme, you will need the equivalent of a higher level Dutch VWO diploma. Before we can decide on your eligibility, we will need to assess your secondary school certificate. To make sure your certificate is evaluated fairly, we work with NUFFIC, an organisation that specialises in the assessment of international education qualifications.
Bachelor candidates who were educated in the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Ireland, United States, Canada (Quebec only when the education language is English), Australia, New-Zealand, South Africa or Malta, or students holding a diploma (including English as an exam subject) stated on this diploma list, doesn’t need to take an English proficiency test.
All other prospective students are required to hand in a valid and sufficient TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, or Cambridge (CAE or CPE) certificate to the Enrolment Centre. The TOEFL, TOEIC and IELTS certificate must not be older than two years at the start of the study year.
See the document of the Language requirements for more information.
Please note: The Hague University of Applied Sciences does not accept Institutional TOEFL scores, TOEFL ITP scores or any other language test certificates.
Please note: if you take (or have taken) the TOEFL English proficiency test, please allow The Hague University of Applied Sciences to check your online results to verify your TOEFL certificate. The Institution Code of The Hague University of Applied Sciences is 7042.
If you completed your prior education in another country than those listed above you might still qualify for exemption, if:
- you have an American or International High School Diploma, or
- you have an European or International Baccalaureate Diploma.
Please contact the THUAS Enrolment Centre and ask for details.
